37. Occupational therapists may not cease to provide professional services to a client before completing the agreed upon treatment unless they have sound and reasonable grounds. Sound and reasonable grounds include, in particular:
(1) loss of the relationship of trust between the client and occupational therapist;
(2) lack of benefit to the client from the professional services offered by the occupational therapist;
(3) the likelihood that maintaining the professional services may, in the occupational therapist’s judgment, become more harmful than beneficial for the client;
(4) the impossibility for the occupational therapist to establish or maintain a professional relationship with the client, particularly in the presence of a conflict of interest or a context that could call into question the former’s professional independence;
(5) inducement by the client to perform illegal or fraudulent acts;
(6) non-compliance by the client with the conditions agreed on and the impossibility of entering into a reasonable agreement with the client to reinstate the conditions, in particular with regards to professional fees;
(7) the decision by the occupational therapist to scale down or to put an end to his or her practice.
